2014 Hyundai Accent – Affordable, comfortable, and stylish

When searching for a subcompact car, you don’t need to bust your budget to get a vehicle with comfort, style, and features.

The 2014 Hyundai Accent, the automaker’s entry-level 4-door and 5-door models have a starting price that ranges between $13,449-13,779 MSRP, and will offer some nice features for under $15K. That, and Hyundai vehicles come with a long warranty.

The 2014 Hyundai Accent is up against competitors like the Nissan Versa, Honda Fit, and Ford Fiesta, but even then, have you seen the new Accent? Whether as a sedan or a hatchback, the Accent offers seductive styling for such an affordable car, plus the features are certainly worth checking out.

If we take the hatchback as a primary example, the 2014 Hyundai Accent offers available features like 16-inch wheels, heated exterior mirrors, a sunroof, and a rear spoiler. On the inside, automatic climate control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are available depending on the model, and those that select the GL Manual trim will already benefit from standard features like heated front seats, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and Bluetooth, power door locks, and a telescopic steering wheel.

Inside the vehicle, buyers may appreciate the cabin’s setup, including the placement of the controls, and the nice styling. In fact, the interior provides a surprisingly upscale vibe due to the stylish dashboard, good choice of materials, and upholstery. Consumers can also expect comfortable front seats, and as for 6-foot tall passengers, they should have enough headroom and legroom to find a comfortable position.

As for what powers the 2014 Hyundai Accent, the vehicle is equipped with a 1.6-litre Gasoline Direct Injection engine, capable of delivering 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque at 4,700 rpm. The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy ratings when equipped with the manual are 7.5/5.3 liters per 100 kilometers (city/highway), which is low enough to appreciate. With the automatic, the ratings become 7.6 and 5.2 L/100km.

When driving the 2014 Accent in the city or in a rural area, you may feel a sense of contentment with the small car, which has to do with good fuel economy, and an engine that will give you everything its got. As a result, the Accent is surprisingly quick for a subcompact car. Another aspect to note is the quiet and comfortable ride that one can experience when driving the small car. It offers a nice ride for daily commutes.

The 2014 Hyundai Accent is an affordable and intriguing option for a subcompact car. The sedan is a nice choice, and the 5-door hatchback model allows for owners to fold the rear seats with a 60/40 split, thereby increased cargo volume. Attractive styling, a good list of features, and Hyundai’s 5-5-5 warranties (5 years/ 100,000km for the comprehensive limited, powertrain, and basic emissions coverage) certainly adds a sense of security to the purchase.
